I could use some advice on what to charge for catering?
I am not a professional caterer but because I'm a pretty good cook, my neighbor/friend has asked me to cater his staff xmas party at his home. I'm only responsible for the main entree & 1 side dish.I plan to give them my receipts for the food costs but am struggling with an hourly rate for shopping time/labor prep/cooking. I want to be reasonable and possibly get return gigs so this could be setting a precedent.. I read the comments on this site but they applied more to full time caterers that incorporate food costs in the hourly rate.
